I started my new job today.
I’ll be providing technical support for Eastern Florida State College’s four campuses, as well as online classrooms. This is my desk. Rather upscale from what I was expecting… and the pay is nice, as well.
I certainly hope this job is rewarding! I’ll be working this and Publix at the same time, since the college job only allows me up to 20 hours per week.

This was meant to be a quick warm up, but it turned into a comic that I’ve wanted to draw for a while. This is something that is extremely important to me, and I appreciate it if you read it.

A while ago, I heard a story that broke my heart. A family went a cat shelter to adopt. The daughter fell in love with a 3-legged cat. The father straight up said “absolutely not”. Because he was missing a leg. That cat was that close to having a family that loved him, but the missing leg held him back. Why?!

Many people have the initial instinct of “nope” when they see an imperfect animal. I get it, but less-adoptable does NOT mean less loveable. 9 out of 10 people will choose a kitten over an adult cat. And those 10% that would get an adult cat often overlook “different” animals.

All I want people to do is be open to the idea of having a “different” pet in their lives. Choose the pet that you fall in love with, but at least give all of them a fair shot at winning your heart.

Don’t dismiss them, they deserve a loving home just as much as any other cat. They still purr, they still love a warm lap, they still play, they still love you. Trust me, next time you are in the market for a new kitty, just go over to that one cat that’s missing an eye and see what he’s all about!

Brilliant. Definitely true about kittens maturing and changing personalities over time. Some grow up to be rotten little stinkers!

Associate Appreciation Visit

Our Publix store was visited by a higher up who shook our hands and told us about how long he’d been with the company, as well as how he rose and accumulated multitudes of stock. That was called an “Associate Appreciation Visit”. It was neither inspiring nor was it making me feel appreciated.

If I wasn’t cut off from benefits because I don’t work 1500 hours throughout the year, I might feel appreciated. A full time employee who takes at least two smoke breaks on the clock every day and can work just hard enough to not get marked off on their performance reviews can get benefits just fine. I can work my behind off for 1000 hours over the year and get dental/vision, but no actual health insurance. I estimate that my credited hours will rest somewhere around 1200 this year.

Full disclosure: I work for Publix and these comments are my own, not representing the company.
